The Covid Pandemic has forced many of us to stay at home and, if were lucky, work from home. This has caused a big increase in home improvement projects. I'll bet a lot of stimulus check were used for home improvement.
In the November, 2020 issue of Coatings World, Anthony Loccicero sites a survey from the Farnsworth Group that surveyed 1000 consumers - "80% said they had started a home improvement project". The top product searched for on the internet is paint. On a recent trip to my local hardware store, I asked the owner "How's Business"? He grinned and said "GREAT! If we get a 6% increase in sales we consider that a good year. We're already up over a quarter million dollars year to date and paint sales increases are a big part of that figure." One coatings company PPG has experienced a triple digit percentage increase in online paint sales.
